An estate in Woodside, California, sold in late 2012 for the astronomical price of $117.5 million, making it the second most expensive home ever sold in the United States, reports Curbed. The national record, $132.5 million, was set last year for a Montana ranch purchased by real estate mogul Stanley Kroenke. The ranch, it should be noted, was 124,000 acres, vastly larger than the runner up. And oddly, the Woodside, California property sits on a mere 9 acres.
